Abstract


Education is a very important issue in most training and nurturing systems. The main objective of this research is to investigate the effect of modern teaching methods on students' educational progress. Research population is composed of all students of Sama1 elementary school of Ghaemshahr city (N = 169) from which 118 students were selected as sample based on Morgan's Table and in a random manner. Regression results indicated that modern teaching methods (brainstorming, synectics, problem-solving, indirect-consultancy, role-playing, scientific trip, inquiry-based method, computer-based teaching) have significant effect in the dependent variable of educational progress. Teaching is an important learning tool. Employing modern teaching methods may facilitate learning. Of course, no teaching method is good or bad per se, but their manner of use weakens or strengthens them. Hence, teachers must employ the most appropriate methods based on educational goals, teaching content, students' needs and interests, available equipment and facilities (time, space, objects, etc) to reach a desirable teaching.
